“…This species exhibited the lowest persistence, likely as a result of low‐survival rate and the lack of conspecific cues leading to colony clusters and thus the formation of larger and more resistant patches. Low resistance to predation, as previously observed for ascidians in the study area (Oricchio, Flores, & Dias, ; Vieira et al., , ) and elsewhere (Jurgens, Freestone, Ruiz, & Torchin, ; Osman & Whitlatch, ) may have played an important role. As such, we conclude that potentially strong competitors, as B. nigrum , may impose very limited priority effects on community structure because they fail to persist under average environmental conditions.…”

“…By forcing sets of experimental assemblages to be founded by functionally different sessile invertebrates, we provide here independent and novel evidence for the unique role of Schizoporella species worldwide in the determination of benthic community dynamics. In our study area, S. errata seems to be the strongest competitor in artificial hard substrates, owing both to its fast growth and resistance to predators (Vieira et al., ; Oricchio, Flores, & Dias, ; Oricchio, Pastro et al., ). Differently from earlier studies showing later Schizoporella die‐off and subsequent species replacement after 1 year (Sutherland, ; Sutherland & Karlson, ), high year‐round recruitment of S. errata likely allows this species to regain space and persist longer in the study area.…”
